A key problem in supporting multilingual information retrieval and digital content management is reasoning about overlapping context domains. Ontologies are currently emerging as representation techniques for overlapping complimentary context domains. To date, research has focused on the mappings of monolingual ontologies, however, the issue of mapping ontologies written in different natural languages is relatively unexplored at the moment. This paper discusses challenges in the area of multilingual ontology mapping and proposes the semantic oriented mapping for multilingual ontologies (SOMMO) framework to advance the state of the art in multilingual ontology mapping. The SOMMO framework aims to improve multilingual ontology mapping results generated from existing monolingual ontology matching techniques by evaluating the semantics embedded in both the source and target ontologies.
